This still makes it extremely EASY and SAFE to make your own alcoholic spirits at home. Comes with very EASY to follow instructions and, unlike most stills, there is no running water required. Constructed entirely of Type 304 stainless steel (the type of stainless used in premium cookware), ensuring a SAFE final product, untainted by any leaching or reaction that can happen with other types of metals. The compact 1/2 gallon capacity is the perfect size to get you started with distillation-not too large to make it unwieldy for a kitchen, but big enough to yield 7 to 12 ounces of liquor. And it's all backed by an Ironclad 90 Day Money Back Guarantee. Try it for 90 days and if unsatisfied for any reason, simply return it for a full refund including the cost of return shipping. PLEASE NOTE: The hot plate in the photos is not included--it is only shown to depict a setup.
INSTRUCTIONS TO AVOID BAD TASTE
The issue of bad taste is an issue with ALL alcohol stills-not just our product. It is the nature of alcohol distillation but it can be prevented
1. Wash all components before distilling. This removes any oils/residue from the manufacturing process which can cause bad taste
2. The first portion of the distillate that comes out of the alcohol still is called the "heads" and will ALWAYS taste bad. This is the nature of alcohol distillation with ALL alcohol stills, not just our product. No matter what alcohol you use
, the "heads" (the first portion of the distillate) will always taste bad. Hence discard the "heads" to eliminate bad taste.
3. Taste can further be improved by using an Activated Charcoal Filter (such as a Brita). Detailed instructions are provided in the manual that is sent in every package
